The area of a trapezium is given by 0.5*(a+b)*h where a and b are the lengths of the parallel sides and h is the vertical distance between them. The fact that the trapezium is isosceles does not matter. A trapezium is a 2 dimensional object and so it has no volume.

The volume of a prism is the area of the base (or the cross section of the prism that is perpendicular to the height) times the height.V = Ab * h

The formula for the volume of a prism is V = AlSee related link below for more help

To find the volume of a rectangular prism, multiply the base, width, and height. If the prism is irregularly shaped, multiply the base and the height.

The volume of any prism is worked out in the same way whether it's a hexagonal prism, circular prism or a triangular prism. You just need to times the length of the prism against the area of the cross-section.

Volume = 1/2*(a+b)*h*l where a and b are the lengths of the parallel sides of the trapezium, h is the height of the trapezium, and l is the length of the prism.

A trapezium prism has 10 vertices

Volume of prism = area of cross section x length.

calculate the overall volume as if the prism wasn't truncated and did form a central peak (v = 1/2*b*h*l), then calculate the volume of the prism above the truncation. Then deduct this from the overall volume.

Measure, then multiply(length of the prism) x (width of the prism) x (height of the prism) .The product of the three dimensions is the volume of the prism.

A prism is a solid geometric object. If you know its shape and dimensions you can calculate its volume.

multiply length * width / 2=volume

no, it's 2d

Its volume is: cross-section area times its length
